utorrent died on me, had to switch to another bittorrent client.
Now using ABC. Have a bunch of .torrents loaded into ABC that
trackers are not finding. How to re-post these .torrents?

It's not clear what you mean. Do you mean you loaded the torrent file and ABC can't find the files or that you loaded the torrent file and the trackers are giving an error?

It's impossible that a torrent program can't find information about the tracker out of the torrent file which worked for your before. Maybe they were removed from tracker(s) due long time lack of leechers or the tracker went down? You should have a message from the tracker displayed in your program.

ABC displays the torrents as 'queued', and progress is 0%. I haven't been able to find any support for ABC, so you are it. All torrents recently downloaded have 100% progress, and occasionally are seeding. The rest at 0% don't do anything. I'd like to reseed or announce them, but how? Does anybody know of support for ABC?

It sounds to me like when you dropped the torrents into ABC, they didn't know where to find your old files and so they started a new folder for downloading. There is probably some setting you need to turn on/off that has to do with what folder to download the files to. You need to be able to point ABC to the folder where you have the completed shows.

best guess is that ABC cannot find the torrent files on my hard drive. I'm not sure how to check for leechers.

They do have forums on sourceforge - http://sourceforge.net/forum/?group_id=88285 They aren't very active, but you may be able to search through the messages and find what you want.
